The Conservancy’s education program is dedicated to teaching people of all ages and backgrounds about Brooklyn Bridge Park’s unique built and natural environment.

Using the Park as a living laboratory, we offer interactive hands-on lessons that inspire stewardship and life-long learning. We incorporate inquiry-based, experiential learning into STEAM lessons, public programs, online resources, and professional development opportunities.
